Color Me Trendy
Color trends seem to sometimes take the creative world by surprise – and then by storm. If you propose a new color combo too early, your clients will think you are crazy. In this session, take a look at what colors are popular in different industries and how you can do your own color trend research. We’ll look at where to find great sources of color inspiration for your designs and how to test those ideas out. Put the power of color back into your designer hands.
My presentation will be about what this community does so well, harnessing the power of the creative world to find great colors. So if you have something you'd like to share, let me know and I might add it in to the presentation.
If you could help other designers with figuring out the color trends what would you share with them? Have some bit of color advice, a favorite tool, a place you find inspiration, case studies of how you've used color in your work...
Hope to see you there.
